Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Rather too herbal for a higher rating, this dusty, stalky nebbiolo should evolve over the medium term. Sweetly perfumed and slightly meaty scents of red flower petals, cloves and cinnamon reveal pungent stalky undertones. Its sweet length of juicy small cherries, berries and plums is underpinned by a fine, dusty and frying undercarriage, revealing an underswell of dried herbs and vegetal notes before a fresh but almost fragile finish.

Youthful, herbal and slightly baked, but with plenty of varietal structure and flavour. A heady bouquet of red flowers, red cherries, baked earth and redcurrants reveals a background of spicy, meaty and dried herbal influences. Its long, musky and marginally stewed palate of small red and black cherry/berry fruit is tightly knit with fine, dusty and drying tannins, finishing long, firm and savoury, with notes of currants and berries.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Long and fine-grained, ripe and well balanced, with an earthy, meaty presence of prunes, chocolate, small berries and bitumen backed by dark, smoky oaky notes and suggestions of treacle. Its grainy tannins move forward on the palate, leaving a slightly sweaty, but savoury finish.

Light, bright colour; fresh, brisk and firm red cherry fruit; from an opposite universe to the Shiraz; I know it's a pinot correlative, but...

Firm, drying and very complex, this meaty young nebbiolo should open up delightfully over the next few years. Its wild and briary aromas of meaty, herbal and raspberry-like fruit precede a powerfully constructed palate. Its very spicy and slightly spirity expression of plum and berry flavours is framed by tight bony tannins, finishing long and savoury.

Intense aromas; cigar box, cedar, spice and cherry; Italianate tannins; will likely please Nebbiolo lovers. Good example of a terribly difficult variety.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
A sinewy, Amarone-styled wine built around a powerful grip of drying, meaty tannins. Its madeira-like bouquet of slightly cooked and candied prunes and currants slowly reveals a floral perfume and vibrant berry aromas. Its astringent palate is surprisingly well integrated with its briary expression of plum and prune flavours, but it remains a little too dehydrated for a higher score.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Significantly greener than previous releases of this wine, with a dusty, spicy and peppery aroma of wild, brandied preserved fruits, meaty and floral nuances. Powerful and assertive, its minty expression of licorice-like fruit has a spirity grappa-like quality, before an exceptionally astringent finish.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red, with some purple hues remaining; a fragrant and distinctly varietal bouquet with tangy/spicy fruit aromas and subtle oak; the light to medium-bodied palate has lingering spicy/savoury flavours which are nonetheless sweet, with fine tannins running throughout and in no way compromising the mouthfeel or flavour. The best Australian wine I have yet tasted from an Italian grape variety, and Ron Laughton says the 2002 is better still.
